In-Person Consultations and Training:  Behavior consultations and private training are offered in the comfort of your home or at the training studio space at 528 N Main St, Oshkosh, WI (Ideal Dog). Weather permitting, Cari can meet with you socially distanced for outdoor appointments.

Online Consulting: There are many benefits to online consultations. If your dog displays fearful or aggressive behavior in response to unfamiliar people entering your home, your initial remote consultation appointment may be less stressful for both you and your animal and the focus can be put on providing a detailed behavioral history of your animal. Platforms like Zoom also allow for easy recording of important moments during your training session that you can review at a later time. Depending on the behavior in question, a phone consultation may also be appropriate. 

Fee Structure: 
Initial 90 minute consultations are billed at $175 and include a detailed and personalized written assessment with an outline of recommended management and training recommendations. Follow-up training sessions are billed at $95/hr.  A $25 deposit is due to hold a scheduled appointment time. Contact Cari to set up an initial consultation.

Travel fees for in-home appointments are billed at $1.50 / round trip mile. Bounced checks and missed appointments without 48 hours' notice are subject to a $25 service fee. Missed in-home appointments are also subject to travel fees.
